Thank You

We are sad to see our year end.  We have had such a memorable year working with all of your children.  They have been delightful and it has been so fun to see them make huge progress throughout the year.  Thank you for all of your support and help both at home and at school.  We wish all of our students much success in first grade.  Have a wonderful summer full of reading and writing!

Final Week

This is our final week of Kindergarten for the 2014-15 school year.   We still have lots of meaningful and exciting activities to complete this week so it is important that your child still attends school each day.  Look for a note coming home indicating the time your child is scheduled for his/her post assessment next week.

Our last day of kindergarten will be on Friday, May 22nd.  We will be doing activities in our classrooms that will finalize our wonderful year together.  It will be a typical day and end at our regular time.  Look for your child's portfolio to come home on Friday.  Enjoy looking through all of their activities they have completed this year.   It has been a wonderful year working with all of you and your children!  Thank you for helping make their kindergarten year such a success.

Field Day

On Friday we enjoyed our kindergarten field day.  A big THANKS to all of the parents who helped us make this day a success.  We didn't let the rainy weather stop us from having a great day.  The students enjoyed many activities indoors.  Some of the events included:  twister, ring toss, bowling,  summer bingo, board games, bean bag games, sidewalk chalk games, and a summer pin punch.  The students had a lot of fun and were able to experience some great activities.

Author's Celebration

We are so proud of all the hard work and effort our students expended in creating their masterpieces.  They went through the entire writing process to create the final product of a poem book.  We learned about different types of poems and then wrote poems together as a class.  The students then wrote their own poems!  Their original writings can be found in their portfolios.  Then they read their poems to their teacher who then typed them and printed them out to become the book of poems.  Students then illustrated their poems, making sure their pictures matched what their poem was about.  They practiced reading their poems to themselves and each other in class.  We also had the opportunity to share our poem books with an older grade.
Then finally we were able to share our wonderful books with many parents and grandparents.  The students did a fabulous job during this whole process and especially in presenting their books to adults!   THANK YOU to all the parents and family members who were able to come and enjoy our author's celebration and share the accomplishments of each of our students.  We appreciate you supporting your child's writing talents.  Our students were able to feel very successful and accomplished by being able to share their writing with so many adults.

Diamond Fork Field Trip

We had a wonderful time on our field trip to the mountains.  Thank you to all the parents who were able to come along and help keep us safe!  While there we were able to observe and learn a lot.We each had the opportunity to participate in three activities:
1.  wading in the river to find lots of different types of bugs and fish
2.  going on a nature hike to discover types of plants and trees, look at evidences of beavers, and see some deer antlers
3.  learning all about birds, their wings and feathers and using binoculars to observe birds around us. 

This was a great opportunity and we would like to give a special THANK YOU to Sarah Flinders who obtained grant money to fund this trip, organized all of the learning activities, and guided us through the river.  Also, a big thank you to the other Forest Service experts who guided us.
